Robot Safety: An In-depth Exploration of Categories and Standards

It's 2021, and robotics have been used by innovators more than ever, especially when it comes to solving employment and safety problems brought about by the coronavirus pandemic. However, as more businesses look to implement more complex or novel robots into their current work practices and manufacturing processes, they're finding that the robotics safety landscape is complex and difficult to navigate.

Our e-book aims to create a comprehensive foundation of the specific standards governing the manufacture, integration, and use of robotics, outlined by country and/or region.

  • United States
  • Canada
  • Europe
  • Japan
  • International
In addition, we define how each standard interrelates with the five main categories of robots.

  • Personal Care Robots (PCR)
  • Traditional Industrial Robots and Robot Cells (TIR)
  • Industrial Mobile Robots (IMR)
  • Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV)
  • Collaborative Robots (CR)
